Get to know the Modern sofa style

Lovers of Modern style have sophisticated taste - drawn to clean sleek lines and off-the-floor shapes, with feature metal legs. Silhouettes inspired by Italian design don’t compromise on comfort, though; this style commonly includes recliner mechanisms and a bias toward smooth, sumptuous leathers. Look a little closer to find quality detailing like headrests, minimalist buttoning and stitching. This contemporary sofa style is incredibly versatile; working as a corner or chaise, but makes a real statement, often larger than your average sofa.

Minimalist sofas

For those whose homes are a shrine to minimalism, or simply love that sleek, contemporary look - you can’t beat a modern sofa. Contemporary sofas tend to run on the side of sleeker silhouettes, with precise details, and often with added practical functionality - like the option to easily rearrange the shape of your sofa, power reclining head and footrests, or even hidden storage or lighting.

Italian inspired sofas

Modern italian sofas are so iconic, their design elements and silhouettes have been copied the world over - and are often hailed as some of the ultimate modern sofas. Italian style sofas are created to be exquisitely elegant, focusing on high quality materials, clean, streamlined shapes and meticulous details, to create the most sophisticated sofa designs. Italian sofa styles lend themselves well to corner sofas, and are often hailed as the ultimate modern leather sofa - but most are available in fabric options too.
